CSCuj81593 - ASA failover interface monitoring status Unknown after reload of active

Hello,

We are using Software Version 9.1(4) on ASA 5545.

On show failover we get the following output:

        This host: Primary - Active

                Active time: 10847 (sec)

                slot 0: ASA5545 hw/sw rev (1.0/9.1(4)) status (Up Sys)

                  Interface outside (83.236.222.116): Unknown (Waiting)

                  Interface inside (172.17.220.130): Normal (Waiting)

                  Interface management (0.0.0.0): Link Down (Not-Monitored)

        Other host: Secondary - Standby Ready

                Active time: 448 (sec)

                slot 0: ASA5545 hw/sw rev (1.0/9.1(4)) status (Up Sys)

                  Interface outside (0.0.0.0): Unknown (Waiting)

                  Interface inside (0.0.0.0): Unknown (Waiting)

                  Interface management (0.0.0.0): Link Down (Not-Monitored)

The problem is that interface tracking does not work.  If the ethernet cable on the inside (or ouside) interface is removed, we do not get a failover.

Can someone make a suggestion please?

Hi Donald,

You are missing the "Standby IPs" on each interface.  This is required for Failover interface monitoring.  Once you assign Standby IPs, the "show failover" output will display them on the Standby unit, and the interfaces will transition from "Waiting" to "Normal".

Sincerely,

David.
